Waimumu Southern Field Days 16 February 2024

As part of the students’ introduction to the Agribusiness sector, they will be visiting the Waimumu Southern Field Days site, and the aim is to look at careers and opportunities available within the Primary Industry, with an advisory, consultant and analytical space.

As part of the Southern Field Days 2024, students will be participating in the Food & Fibre Discovery Challenge brought to you by NZ Young Farmers and Beef + Lamb New Zealand. Participants will go around the different sites involved in the scavenger hunt, identifying different career pathways and opportunities, answering questions as they go and discovering new knowledge. Route information will be given to them prior to the day so that they can sort where they are starting from, with the end point the Beef + Lamb New Zealand.
